APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Many of us would rather do pretty much anything than speak in front of an audience. But skillfully communicating your ideas—whether you’re persuading your boss to back a crucial new project or convincing your family that a camping trip would be better than a theme park vacation—is critical to success in almost every part of life. Communication expert Carmine Gallo’s guide breaks down how to get your ideas across successfully by analyzing what makes TED Talks so fascinating. Gallo, who narrates with the easygoing enthusiasm of a practiced public speaker, hits all the tried-and-true points, but also gets specific in breaking down why audiences respond to an effective, engaging public speaker. Looking at presentations from the other side of the microphone helped us get more comfortable with the idea of talking in front of crowds, but we also loved the behind-the-scenes stories of how some of the most viral TED Talks came to be.
